The climate is continental but cutting - its normal for day temperature to raise up to 25C and drop down to 10 within a week. A great number of bright sunny days (avg is 260 per year) are good for cotton growing. Uzbekistan is one of the most important producers of cotton and silk. If you look at the map you will see coal, oil and natural gas resources, deposits of marble, non-ferrous and other metals including gold.
Best time to travel to Uzbekistan is Spring, early Summer and whole Autumn.
Avg. air temperature in Spring is from 15 to 20C and during this season Uzbek nature just represents all its beauty. Also, the most known music & dance festivals usually hosted during that time.
Under ‘early summer’ term we, Uzbeks, usually understand late May & June. Because not everyone feeling fine when the avg. day temperature goes above 35C. There also has started a so-called ‘season of rains’ when it's raining almost every day because of mussons coming up from Eastern Asia and Russia.

And the Autumn is the most loaded season in tourism in Uzbekistan. It's all because of the most soft & warm weather, with no sand winds and no rain either. The avg. temperature during September-October is 20-25C. It may drop lower out of the sudden but usually gets back very quick.
Also, because of the global warming winter in Uzbekistan is almost snowless and sort of warm - day temperature barely goes below +5C. And during winter season we offer special tour packages to Uzbekistan & Central Asia with lowered prices and less crowded attractions.
For example, our Winter tour would cost you $555 if you book it for 2 persons and lower if the group is bigger. Looks like a good deal? :)
